Hondashi or Hon Dashi, the Japanese soup base, is the underlying basis for most Japanese cooking, though it is considered a rare ingredient not widely available outside of Asia. Hondashi is the secret ingredient in well known Japanese foods such as miso soup and tempura sauce. Translated as “real broth,” Hondashi is made from dried bonito fish, seaweed essence and additional flavors.
